Ain't nothing wrong with his left hook, baby
Not gonna lie, I love how reckless Razor is xD Honestly, he IS kinda crazier than T-Bone. I guess I've always found his recklessness (and his rebellious streak) to be interestingly juxtaposed with his otherwise reserved and relaxed nature.
"This another one of your crazy ideas, bud?"
"Hey, this is desperation
"But, wait, what about the people in those towers?"
"Buuuuddyyy, I said I'm desperaaaaate. C'mooon
You're probably stabbing
civilians with your macrobot!"
"Look, you really
gonna bust my tail about it while they're off screen?"
Not gonna lie, I reaaally cringed watching this Twin Towers finale with the ground zero ending in this post 9/11 world. This show did NOT age well on the PC front. Ouch.
#you know they dead
OKAY THO, SERIOUSLY. I'm gonna join in the whole "two enforcers died in the tank" discussion. I rewatched the scene and honestly, I'm willing to bet it was just... a writing mistake, or a mistake in the production somewhere. Not saying anyone else's theories aren't spot on, just throwing out a few more.
Tank malfunctions after the SWAT Kats scrambler missiles do their thing, and everybody is basically watching Hard Drive's tank swerve around for 30 seconds (Enforcers have plenty of reaction time here in a cartoon sense, which is... one of the reasons why I don't actually fault the SWAT Kats here, personally) at which Feral finally
jumps from the tank with 5 seconds to spare before it's crushed (again, an eternity in cartoon time, especially considering how "conveniently" most of the Enforcers tend to escape death at the last second, lets be real here). Why would they not
be scrambling out their tank as fast as they usually do, with enough time to spare their lives in the scene? I don't think it was deliberately written that they die, although due to what's probably
an oversight, they do. That would best explain why Feral didn't cause a stink over his two dead men, I'm guessing.
Or, darker theory here, and it may be a crack one, but the fact that Feral doesn't call out to his men to escape... and then says nothing as their corpses are crushed within the tank after, well... who's ultimately responsible for the lives of Feral's men under his command? He is. Their avoidable deaths may make him look bad. Again, dark/crack heory here xD but it would be an expansion on the negative qualities Feral showed when he crowded out
our hero's plane when they had a locked target on Dark Kat--and for all their disobeying orders, was a stupid, self-serving and self-seeking
order on Feral's part, not to mention his subsequent denial and blame surrounding that incident.
I know some people adore Feral (and hey, I do too) but, that's what the show tries to put across at any point, and I've never had any reason to really give Feral a pass on that, even if he's shown to be otherwise a well-intentioned, brave blowhard who's really just doing his job. Do I actually think Feral ignored their deaths in front of the press because he thought it would reflect badly on him? xD No. But I get why the show makes him the butt of jokes--vigilante stories point out why "the system" doesn't always work, and Feral and the Enforcers? They're the system. Sure, it'd be nice if they got a little bit more credit for what they do, but I figure that's been on the part of the audience to interpret in this case, and it sounds like they do
But, not gonna lie, I'm intrigued by the writer's take on Feral getting tempted by corruption in the original premise for Cry Turmoil, and what wasn't revealed in the incomplete Curse Of Kataluna episode when he gets tempted by a succubus xD
